5:38 am
alas alaska, have all decriminalized pot use. the district of columbia has done the same. question 4 would allow adults 21 and older to use and cultivate marijuana. the drug would be regulated and taxed by the commonwealth. yes on 4 advocates dispute claims that pot is a gateway drug. >> i would like to see a scientific study that shows that because we haven't seen a single credible scientific study that shows that marijuana is a gateway to anything. if there's a it's two things. tobacco and alcohol. we have seen that early use of tobacco -- both legal. we've seen that early use of tobacco is a gateway to other substances. antoinette: watch on the record this morning at 11:00 a.m. we examine the question of legalizing marijuana in massachusetts. that's followed by "matter of fact" at 11:30. then grammy winning artist, darlene love, is on cityline at

5:42 am
5:43 am
antoinette: good morning. welcome back. targeting college students and their families. the irs says that people are calling up victims, pretending to be agents and demanding immediate payment of a fake federal student tax and they're pretty convincing. they know the victim's names and they know other information as well. but the irs says they will never, never ask for payment over the phone. doug: the next story is one of those really? pokemon go has become the
5:44 am
hidden in the real world. however, on a different note, researchers at m.i.t. are working to take that idea a step further, bringing the real world into the game. antoinette: mike wankum shows us how in this morning's "cutting edge." mike: to win at pokemon go, you try to find pick chu and friends hidden all over the world. lots of fun, but the characters are just there, floating in space. what if the characters were really part of the scene in your phone? world reacted to their presence and movement. abe davis, a 28-year-old researcher at m.i.t., is making that happen. >> we've developed algorithms that are good at recovering motion that we can't see. motion that's so small or so subtle that you or i wouldn't notice it. mike: everything has vibration, whether it's the grass in the background, this sign or even this building. here at m.i.t., they're studying those tiny vibrations and by
5:45 am
virtual world. here's how it works. as abe pounds his fist on the table, look carefully and you might be able to see the wire figure vibrate. just a little. >> what does that motion tell you about the object itself? mike: he takes just a few seconds of video, capturing that motion. loads it into his interactive dynamic video program, and those algorithms show us how the figure behaves. if you grab an elbow or push or prod it in a variety of ways. >>au will prefer to vibrate at different frequencies and in different shapes. if you can learn that information, then it tells you a lot about how the object would respond to new forces. mike: what are the possibilities? better interaction with gaming. better engineering of bridges and building and hollywood is already taking notice. the system could create more life-like special effects for a lot less money. abe's youtube video of the process got hundreds of
5:46 am
weeks. >> since then, i've gotten a lot of emails. i haven't actually been through all of them, but people seem to be interested, which is exciting. this is why i spent all of that time, because this is cool. mike: abe and his two other team members, along with m.i.t., already have six patents on their work. and what they are doing in the research lab some day may show up on your smart phone or on the big screen. antoinette: technology is already so great. here it isus mike: he can do it in his lab in a matter of seconds, whereas it might take a studio weeks and months of animation. it's amazing. antoinette: mind blowing. mike: it real. doug: i don't think he got an email from any one of us. mike: very bright young man. on the satellite picture this morning, we have not much to talk about here, but if you look to the west, look at this cloud cover starting to come in and look at the rain as well. it's not as much as i'd hoped
5:47 am
models were saying it's going to really rain. now looks like scattered showers, perhaps a rumble of thunder. one or two of us may get a downpour. as far as heavy rains, i don't think it's going to happen. temperatures in the mid to upper 60s at this point. got a few 50s showing up. taunton down to 55. humidity dropped last night. you may have noticed it was comfortable sleeping. now the humidity is coming up as the sunrises. 65 degrees, degrees. this afternoon, the do you waews in the 70s. in the shore line, 70s today. inland, 80s. just like yesterday, the same temperatures. you might be cooler in worcester at 78 degrees. tuesday morning, lows drop to the mid 50s. behind the threat of rain comes rather refreshing air across the area. if you go to the beach today,
5:48 am
